One White Crow
Creamy, Green, Fougère
A soft, classic fougère with creamy white tea, airy vanilla, violets, and honeysuckle over a bed of moss and ivy.
William James dedicated his life to exposing the charlatans that arose from the Spiritualism movement. A man of science, he never met a specter that could not be uncloaked or a clairvoyant that could not be debunked. He cast a light of reason into the shady business of smoke and mirrors, and was confident that the many mediums who claimed supernatural powers possessed none, until he met Leonora Piper. When James and his cohorts from the American Society of Psychological Research conducted a rigorous and intense investigation of Piper, he became a believer after she told him things that only his son, who had passed away, could have known.
James expressed his belief in Piper by saying, "If you wish to upset the law that all crows are black, it is enough if you prove that one crow is white. My white crow is Mrs. Piper."
